Basket Weave Pattern #1: How to do it

09-27-2017 11:13 AM by toolfooldan | 6 comments »

Basket Weave Pattern Technique Adapted from the book “High Relief Wood Carving” by William J Schnute. Layout a grid of squares. Each side of the grid equal to the width of the carving gouge you’ll use. In this instance, the gouge is 5/16mm. Each side is therefore 16mm, or about 5/8”. Since I’m more imperial than metric, I used 5/8. Close enough. Each side of each grid square will get a stop cut with the 5/16 gouge. Mark orientation lines. It’s real easy to make mista...

The old time woodshop journals #37: Woodworkers thoughts by way of world works

12-06-2012 10:43 PM by jjw5858 | 2 comments »

The birch wood I rescued was fast sawn and put to work from hatchet to knives. I eagerly progressed through this grain I had been longing to find shaping my first spoon of this species hoping the sheer victory of acquiring it may lead to something new and improved. I have been trying to look at more classic spoon designs, and realized my quest has been interrupted due to my lack of taking enough wood away…lol. I guess my fears were discovered as I tossed through my tote of past creat...

Carving a small spoon

04-16-2014 04:10 PM by filiplaw | 3 comments »

I had a small piece of pine laying around and a free afternoon so I decided to carve another spoon. I wanted it to be small (somewhere between a teaspoon and a tablespoon) and simple in shape. I traced around some plastic spoon I had in my kitchen and altered the handle shape a bit. With the outline ready I went to work. I made some stop-cuts with a saw and bashed out the waste with a 20mm chisel. I also did the same to the underside since the stock was way too thick for a spoon.I find ...

THANK YOU ALL!!! One hundred times…THANK YOU!!! When my router went awry…well, I could’ve cried. So many hours of work and I didn’t believe my mother’s gift could be salvaged. I sent out an SOS and boy did you all respond. Your ideas, tips and tricks were amazing but most of all your encouragment left me believing that I could FIX IT! So I headed downstairs and attempted my FIRST EVER patch job. While not perfect I think it’ll look just fine afte...

Exercises in Artisanship #23: Rustic Renaissance Trestle Table: Part 6 THE FINAL

08-14-2012 07:28 PM by jjw5858 | 4 comments »

This table is special I suppose because it is my first. My shop being set in all natural conditions sure made this a spread out project, there were some truly brutal hot and humid days that let this sit and wait for a better time to work with it. I wanted a piece that had touches of rustic warmth supported with lines of a Renaissance rhythm. To stand back and see the entire composition in it’s thought out form, from some ragged sketches to this on my living room floor is a nice reward for ...

I'm gonna be a Star!! #2: Mucho progress!!

07-20-2009 05:06 AM by kolwdwrkr | 14 comments »

I wasn’t supposed to work on this today because I’m supposed to work on a fence for the property I’m renting. I have a huge pile of fence material that the landlord and I just picked up yesterday. But I started this project this morning, blogged it around lunch time thinking I was done for the day, and then ended up back out there. This project has actually been kinda fun. It’s been fast, but fun. Total to this point is around 5 hours. The only thing left is the ...
